Cllr Julia Baker-Smith (formerly Julia Hill)
Councillor Julia Hill, the newly elected member for Whippingham and Osborne has made the decision to return to her maiden name of Baker-Smith.
The Isle of Wight Council would like to ensure that members of the public are able to find Julia’s contact details and will ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
Cllr Baker-Smith said:
“While I understand this name change may come as a surprise and I apologise for any inconvenience, I felt that, as a mark of respect in memory of my father, I should return to my maiden name.
My father, who took a great interest in local issues, would have been delighted at the new direction of the Island and my involvement in the exciting changes ahead.”
